Today I saw a hummingbird, it was lovely as can be.
If you ever saw a hummingbird I think you would agree.
I marvel at his colors, such a pretty sheen,
He reminds me of a rainbow, yellow blue and green.
He visits flowers one by one and hovers by and by,
And sips the nectar oh so sweet, like a butterfly.
His wings he flaps so rapidly one can barely see,
He flies not like the other birds but like a bumblebee.
